Filing a Claim with a Birth Injury Attorney
Every child is precious and important, regardless of health issues. A healthy
child is not more valuable or worthy of love than a child born with health
complications. Nevertheless, it is the responsibility of overseeing doctors
to help parents prepare for the birth of a child with special needs.
